Trivia

The plot for this episode was inspired by a controversial campaign led by Kirk Cameron to insert creationist materials in pamphlets on evolution at college campuses on the anniversary of Charles Darwin's birthday. The robotic scientist, Dr. Widnar, is an anagram of Darwin. See more »

Professor Farnsworth dumps "microscopic nanobots" into a toxic puddle. Nanobots, by definition, are nanoscopic, not microscopic. See more »

Farnsworth goes evolution on everybody's asses!
15 August 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best episode this far in the new Futurama season. I have not really enjoyed the new Futurama before this. This episode is devoted to the hypocrisy of creationist and religious fanatics who just don't listen to science, or to be more exact; evolution. This episode explores the idiotic arguments of the anti evolutionists "Wheres the missing link between the former missing link" presented by an orangutan. Farnsworth gets angry with all the nonsense so he makes some nonsense of his own, but in the end Farnsworth goes evolution on everybody's asses! Its the most interesting episode yet by far. And I at least cant wait to see what more they got in store to next time!
